Vibrant Colors, Backed by Science.

The Photon V2+ is packed with efficient LEDs designed to help your corals thrive, with each spectrum serving a valuable purpose:
  • 420nm Violet: Chosen for their unique ability to make coral colors pop and their close proximity to Chlorophyll a’s maximum absorption peak. The Photon V2+ has more violets than any other light on the market.
  • 450nm Royal Blue: Cree 5watt XT-E Royal Blues were selected for their efficiency and and power. They provide unbelievable shimmer and glow along with a ton of light your corals use for growth.
  • 480nm Cool Blue: Cree 3watt XP-E Cool Blues were selected for their quality and efficiency. Cool Blue is used by accessory proteins to Chlorophyll to help create more light your corals can use for growth, revealing additional coral colors in the process.
  • 520nm Green: Greens are very useful for tweaking the overall color of your light. You can adjust the color tone and perceived brightness of your light with ease by changing the intensity of the green LEDs.
  • 660nm Deep Red: 3watt Osram LEDs add some red light, which is absorbed by chlorophyll a and used by your corals for growth. The reds are also useful for changing the color tone of your light’s output.
  • 5500K Neutral White: Cree 5watt XT-E Neutral Whites were selected for their high CRI and efficiency. The Photon V2+ features Kelvin Neutral whites with crisp color tone and broad full-spectrum output. They are similar in color to the sun at the water’s surface.

The Latest in LED Tech.

The Photon V2+ is powered by 5 watt Cree XT-Es, 3 watt Cree XP-E, and 3 watt Osram and Semi LED chips. Cree sets the industry standard in semiconductor chips and manufactures LEDs renowned for their high efficiency and long lifespan. Osram and Semi are well known for their variety of available colors as well as their quality and efficiency.

Each Photon V2+ is assembled in a clean room using SMT (Surface Mount Technology) for unmatched reliability and extended diode lifespan.

There is no AC power inside the light- everything is powered by an external UL listed DC Power Supply.

All LEDs are combined with precision engineered 100 Degree Optics to provide the perfect balance of light blending, spread, and power. The LEDs are kept cool by an integrated heat sink with temperature-controlled, whisper-silent cooling fans onboard.

The exact dimming channel breakdown is as follows:

LED Breakdown

Channel Color # of LEDs Chip Type Power Spectrum
1 Deep Red 4 Osram 3watt660nm
2 Green 4 Semi LED 3watt 520nm
3 Royal Blue 24 Cree XT-E 5watt 450nm
4 White 20 Cree XP-E 5watt 5500K
5 Cool Blue 16 Cree XP-E 3watt 480nm
6 Violet 20 Semi LED 3watt 420nm

Precision Control with Ease.

Reefbreeders` proprietary wireless controllers have individual color control, sunrise, sunset, moonlight, and thunderstorm functionality onboard. Preset modes and custom daily programming are built in, and multiple lights sync to one remote out of the box with no additional setup required.

Every Photon V2+ includes a fully featured hand-held wireless controller with an LCD screen and touch-sensitive buttons, which can be used to program multiple Photon V2+ units at the same time. You can program the light to change all 6 channels every hour for a sunrise, sunset, and moonlight simulation. The new smart controller will then take that hourly program, and automatically break it into 10 smooth ramping points. Because of the WiFi signal the controller uses, you can even program your lights through a canopy while comfortably seated across the room. The controllers use rechargeable lithium ion batteries which last up to 3 months per charge and include a charging cable.

Endless Mounting Options.

Whether you have a rimless tank or Euro-Brace, these lights seamlessly integrate with your aquarium. Every Photon V2+ includes hanging cables and mounting legs. Internal T-tracks are built in for endless hardware options, including T-5 and LED supplement add-ons and more. The optional BOT mounts (sold separately) offer a seamless look for rimless aquariums, and are made in Rhode Island, USA.

Smart Design.

Each Photon V2+ is made with a slim, 100% extruded aluminum case which will not rust in a marine environment and is built to last, unlike the steel cases that black box lights use.

The Photon V2+s are cooled with silent, temperature-controlled fans. The Air moves over the heat-sink and never comes into contact with the internal electronics, keeping all components cool and dry.

The Photon V2+ is backed in the USA by a full 2 year manufacturer warranty.

Apex VDM Integration.

The all new Photon Apex Interface allows you to fully control your Photon V2 and V2+ via the Neptune Apex 0-10v Variable Dimming Module (VDM). This allows you to add a variety of control schemes that are more advanced than the default controller. You can now control your Photon V2+ using your phone, computer, or on the fly using the Apex Fusion dashboard (sold separately).

Manufacturer information

ReefBreeders LLC became one of the first retailers of black box LED fixtures in 2012. In the beginning of 2016, ReefBreeders introduced the Photon V2-- the second generation of their popular Photon LED series-- and broke away from the black box LED platform of the past, offering a truly exceptional product that not only has great light output, but actually looks good in a living room, and costs far less than brands like Aqua Illumination and Ecotech.
